Abstract : The diffuse dust emission in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) has been observed at different wavelengths ranging from the ultraviolet to infrared by space-based telescopes such as the Far Ultraviolet Spectroscopic Explorer (FUSE), the Spitzer Space Telescope and the AKARI satellites. The dust emission intensities have been studied at these wavelengths for various HII regions within the LMC. Previously, we have probed the dust species in two regions of the LMC, namely the N11 and 30 Doradus with the help of correlation studies among the far-ultraviolet (FUV) and mid-infrared (MIR) as well as far-infrared (FIR) wavelength intensities. This work presents the initial results that we have obtained while trying to model these two regions by using suitable dust mixtures.
